Ring Carnation, the vehicle conversion electrical specialist, is launching the next generation of power management at the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show this year. On stand 5C110, visitors will see how Ring Carnation is “On Board With You” with the new genisys II ECU system and the rest of Ring Carnation’s complete vehicle conversion electrical package.
Power Management: Evolved
genisys II ECU Classic, the first product from the new genisys II series of power management & control modules, will be showcased at the Ring Carnation stand. The company has been the market-leading supplier of switching systems for NHS ambulances since 1995 and genisysTM, launched in 2007, remains the controller of choice. genisys II ECU Classic (gII ECU Classic) has more processing power, bigger memory, greater control capability, higher efficiency and new user-friendly service features. The new ECU is equipped with a high performance 32-bit 300Mhz Atmel Cortex®-M7 processor with 2MB of on-board memory. 16 analogue inputs enable monitoring of multiple conditions such as battery voltages, temperature and pressure. Back-compatible with genisysTM mk1, gII ECU Classic uses RS485 RJ45 communications protocol. The new hardware offers greater operating efficiency aided by a new Class D amplifier, which offers higher fidelity ‘Voice Alerts’. The gII series of modules are built with ABS polymer enclosures with anti-microbial additives, providing durable and hygienic packaging with greater environmental protection. Later in 2019 and in 2020 further additions to the range will be launched, giving users a new level of power control.
In addition, Ring Carnation will be demonstrating its new Wireless Switching Power Hub, which can help reduce installation time by up to 35%. The Power Hub provides up to eight output ports with a total rating of 60A, providing ease of connection for ancillary electrical items. Switching is controlled via its Rechargeable Wireless Switching Panel and comes complete with 360° swivel mount docking station. The Switch Panel is fully backlit and, like the Power Hub, features switching indicator lights, and it can be used remotely from the docking station, all of which allows the user greater flexibility, ease of use and clear information about the switching status. In practice, the Ring Carnation Power Hub can reduce the installation time on a typical installation with 1x light bar, 2x work lamps, 3x interior lights and a hand wash from three hours to under two hours.
Also on display will be the latest range of PowerSource Pure Sine inverters, which have been developed in line with industry requirements. This compact, more efficient range includes extra features such as LCD information screens that can be remotely mounted, and new range additions including options with Integrated Electronic RCD (required to meet 18th
Edition IET Wiring Regulations), which feature an IEC socket allowing easy–to–install socket extensions, plus the all-new 110V inverter.

Ring Carnation will also be explaining how being “On Board With You” is about far more than exceptional products. The company’s cutting-edge technology and bespoke technical solutions are combined with friendly technical support, including installation and operation guidance.
